Good print and sound.

Tim McCoy actually makes a better Caballero than regular cowboy in this film. He was always stiff with flat affect, but as a Mexican here he really comes alive. Too bad he didn't exploit that -- or maybe it was that playing a Mexican in those days could kill your carreer?

Made before Roy Rogers and others created "The Cowboy Code" when cowboy heros were still allowed to drink like regular guys and cavort with painted ladies. And I love the way they throw their bullets out of the guns at their targets to make them go faster. I remember shooting like that with my "Fanner Fifty" as a kid -- just like the cowboys did. LOL. Great memories.

Always like Tim McCoy movies. Used to watch them a long, long time ago. Good to see them preserved for us "old-timers"

Look closely at the two musical numbers. That sure sounds like Bob Nolan in the first number. And if you look closely (almost with a reading glass) that sure looks like Roy Rogers (before he was Roy Rogers) and Bob Nolan playing the music in the saloon.

Subject: Does not star Joe Flaherty.
Another one of those Tim McCoy western movies that seem to spring up like rabbits when looking up the history of the Western. In this one, he gets a job in a traveling medicine show (helping the man who runs it skirt the law at the beginning reel) and getting involved in helping to try to bust a series of bank robberies in the region. His past friend is a G-Man who has infiltrated the group is soon found out and dealt with.. Is Mccoy next?
This film isnt all that bad. Tim McCoy certainly doesnt really rank with the best of the movie cowboys (well, #1 problem would be his hat), but hes somewhat entertaining, gets into a lot of wimpy looking fights (he throws his hat a weapon1 Ooh! Tough!) shoots his gun totally wrong and again treats us to his Mexican impersonation (like he did in Lighting Carson Rides Again). Good for some entertainment.

Tim McCoy is joined by Dick Tracy himself, Ralph Byrd, in this fast-moving low-budget oater from Puritan Pictures, which also offered employment to nearly every Hollywood cowpoke not otherwise engaged, from silent star Bill Patton to hayseed bit player Si Jenks. Puritan Pictures Corp., complete with a logo featuring a sturdy-looking example of its religious namesake, burst upon the scene in 1935 with McCoy as its chief asset. Formerly of Columbia Pictures, the veteran star hoped to acquire more artistic freedom with an independent producer, and although his 10 Puritan westerns were decidedly on the cheap side  reportedly budgeted between $10,000 and $12,000 each, of which $4000 were earmarked for McCoyÂsalary  all were sturdy and well-appointed sagebrush tales and made money for the company. Aside from the McCoy westerns, Puritan is probably best remembered for ÂThe Rogues Tavern (1936), a Nick and Nora Charles wannabe whodunit featuring Wallace Ford and Barbara Pepper.
